Helen's Shoes

hello, hello! thank you all so much for the nice words about our new bathroom and i won't mention it, again ;). charlie has been feeling a little bit under the weather lately, so we've been spending more time at his place where he continues to find the most wonderful things, including helen's baby shoes from the 1920s. aren't they incredible?

it's still pretty hot around here and a couple of movies are on tap. last weekend, we saw despicable me and loved it. this weekend, we hope to see inception (so cool) and maybe i am love (oh italia!) after seeing abby's mention on twitter.

enjoy your weekend!

xo, cindy

i actually was just going to ask you how charlie was....was thinking of him today. i'm so sorry he isn't feeling glad that he has you 2.
i was soooooo excited to get your comment this morning. i was thinking exactly the same thing, but was being shy :)

Helen's baby shoes are just precious :) I hope sweet Charlie feels better soon. My Davy saw I Am Love and said he really liked it but it's one of those that you'll have to think about and digest for a while. I am looking forward to Despicable Me :)

Hugs & Kisses Cindy xoxoxoxo

I hope Charlie is doing better.

I love the shoes. They are in perfect condition. A senior gal down the street from us has her mother's baby shoes. Since she and her sisters all want the shoes, they decided years ago to pass the shoes around to each sister. It stays with a sister untils someone perks up to say "hey who has mom's shoes". xo
